IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: According to the National Institutes of Health’s clinical trials registry, more than 400 clinical trials of therapies designed to treat neurologic diseases are actively ongoing across phases 1 through 3 . Of those, more than 200 are in phase 3 development. Notably, many investigational therapies are addressing diseases with a high unmet clinical need, with either no currently available disease-modifying therapies or very limited options.
With so much activity in the clinical development pipeline, keeping up with the latest findings can sometimes be difficult. Here are 5 critical trials with expected data readouts in 2022 that NeurologyLive® will have its eye on.
